For much the same reason that an acupuncturist's office isn't tagged 
amenity=doctor. If we establish an education=* key with a wide range of 
possible values, like healthcare=*, then that's a different story. But 
amenity=school is commonly understood by mappers and data consumers as 
an institution that provides a certain kind of educational instruction. 
We have dedicated tags for amenity=kindergarten/college/university, and 
kindergartens have more in common with elementary schools than these 
often retail-like establishments.
